In an instant … life changes forever

2 Aug

As I watch the horrific images of the bridge collapse in Minneapolis, it is a flashback moment for me … it’s like a slap in the face.  Life inexplicably changes in an instant for people I don’t personally know … but I do know their pain … and once again all of my own raw, painful emotion bubbles up and grabs me.

We traveled that bridge many a time when Liz was at the U.  In fact, her exit was the University exit at 35W.  It is a sad day.  I will be praying for those families who lost a loved one last night … even more for those who are still in limbo and know the worst has happened but haven’t yet received confirmation.

    Kim, First of all Happy Birthday. Grandma Irene was 53 when Beth and I went to live with them. How would you like to have a 7 and 9 year old move in. but then knowing your hubby he would just take over – yay for Roger. Hope you had a great day because you deserve it. Ive been checking your blog daily and am thinking I may start one. Fun!!! About the bridge… I feel so badly for the families of those still unacounted for. What a horrible thing and then the people who are doing the searching. Just awful all of it. But like they say “its never so bad that it couldnt be worse” Now thats a day brightening comment. Love you and hugs Dawn
